NEW YORK — Gov. Kathy Hochul signed the Less is More Act into law Friday, giving more leniency to parolees. “New York State incarcerates more people for parole violations than anywhere in the country. That is a point of shame for us, and it needs to be fixed. It’s going to be fixed today,” Hochul said. (Snip) Lt. Gov. Brian Benjamin and state Assembly member Phara Souffrant Forrest, who co-sponsored the bill, celebrated its signing, along with other elected officials and criminal justice reform advocates. “When women rule, how things can change, how we can find compassion and understanding and


Dems celebrate. Nearly 200 hardened criminals are set free into society. Does the dopey new governor realize that parolees are not innocent snowflakes? They were sent to Rikers Island because they did something really bad!

Yet the peaceful patriots being held unjustly and brutalized for exercising their first amendment rights remain in the horrid conditions of the DC jail. There is no justice anymore in America.

More of the same. Newsom in California has already perfected this prison release scheme. Even faced with that, Californians just voted to keep Newsom in office. Gov. Kathy Hochul also is big promoter of resettling Afghan refugees in New York state. "Get out of cities now."

Incarceration rate is a point of shame, but being able to murder a baby up to the point of birth? No problem. In fact, Catholic Gov. Hochul will welcome women escaping the pro-life tyrants in Texas, so that the mothers might be able to procure such services. Absolutely ghoulish.

Come on people! Chicago is beating NYC in the weekly shooting and death count! New York City must do better to beat Chicago! Lets let the criminals out of Rikers Island. It is only Parole violators. Criminals let out on the condition that they not commit any crimes and follow certain rules. They broke the rules or committed crimes and ended back in jail. They have proven they deserve to be in jail. The only point of shame is that the new liberal Governor is too idiotic to realize that criminals who commit crimes will get out and commit more crimes. That is what they do! Maybe they will eclipse the Chicago crime records and shootings! The crazy lady Governor make you yearn for the Andrew Cuomo days.....

Hochul, whi I warned you about, is a 'poor little rich girl' who fell into a one term House position, sort of like Dirty Donna Shalala in Miami. Both are graduates of Syracuse University. Hochul selected, as lt. gov., a black fool from NYC who wants to defund the police.

"“When women rule, how things can change, how we can find compassion and understanding and we can recognize what we’ve done wrong,” said Donna Hilton, executive director of A Little Piece of Light." Why western civilization has been going backwards since women were given the vote and the right to be elected (or appointed) to public office. Manly dispassionate reason, logic and the facts on the ground reinforced by the Wisdom of History are quickly replaced by personal feelings, emotions and wishful thinking to the point of denying the lessons of history and the human experience including the principles of science. But it does give women the sanctimonious "compassion" jollies!

Top White House aides set up a "wall" to shield President Biden from unscripted events and long interviews amid fears of the president’s testiness and habit of mangling statements, according to a new book. "Peril" by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa cited a number of incidents from the gaffe-prone president in the early days of his administration, including a back-and-forth with a CNN reporter for which he later apologized. "That side of Biden -- his tendency to at times be testy or mangle statements -- was still with him and now part of his presidency," the book says. In turn

A panel advising the Food and Drug Administration voted to not recommend COVID booster shots for all Americans over 16, dashing an administration hope.

The children, who were not named to protect their privacy, have mild symptoms and will be quarantined.

In one of his first moves after surviving the recall, Gov. Gavin Newsom took his boldest steps yet to fix California’s housing shortage by signing a package of bills that will transform the state by getting rid of single-family zoning and making it easier to build the housing the state so desperately needs. Of the three housing bills Newsom signed Thursday, the most consequential is Senate Bill 9 because it will allow up to four units of housing on a single-family lot.

The new study examined record from almost 50,000 COVID-19 hospital admissions to more than 100 VA hospitals across America. The researchers found that in the pre-vaccination, pre-Delta variant era of the pandemic, from March 2020 to January 2021, 36% of hospitalized patients had a mild or asymptomatic infection. From January 2021 to the end of June 2021, however, the proportion rose to 48%.

It was not immediately clear which cities would be used for the departure flights.
